Namco Bandai sent out a press release today boasting that it has shipped over 2.5 million copies of Tekken 6 worldwide. Now, we don't want to tell Namco how to do its job, but these shipment numbers tend to be more impressive when you give the game a week or so in stores, so we can more readily infe...

No, really. We're not just using awkward British slang -- Namco Bandai is really offering a series of licensed Tekken 6 underwear, perfect for the man whose underwear isn't threatening enough. The three designs, created in collaboration with an underwear shop called Luscious Tokyo, retail for ¥4...

If you're a fighting game enthusiast living in Southern California -- or a really big fighting game enthusiast living in Northern California -- you might want to check out the Tekken 6 launch party that's being hosted by a number of local fighting game community sites in Hawthorne, CA. Attendees wh...

There's a confusing variety of 250GB PlayStation 3 bundles available in different regions. Put simply, the following theorem appears to hold true: if there's a high-profile PS3 game on the way this year, there is also a PS3 bundle for it somewhere in the world. The latest potential candidate for a b...

While some of us still think there's no way that Tekken 6 for the PSP will release alongside its console counterparts, Namco is sticking to its guns on the October 27 release. And so the publisher has unleashed an alarming amount of media for the PSP port, including two new trailers that show off th...

We're just going to lay it down right here: We have no idea what's going on in this Tekken 6 trailer from GamesCom. There's something about a (possibly evil) corporation and there's some other company, and one of them declares war on the world. Somehow, this results in a fighting tournament ... we ...

At $150 -- including a copy of Tekken 6, mind you -- Hori's upcoming arcade sticks for the fighter's sixth iteration look to be a pretty decent deal for those of you still interested in picking up a fighting stick. Coming straight out of Namco's conference at GamesCom, we were given an opportunity...

Listen, we were going to try and come up with a clever headline for this post ("Tekken 6 videos pull no punches!" or "PETA to protest video featuring brutal Jaguar-Man violence" were a few notable options) but we've decided to simply call it what it is: A hell of a lot of content from Namco's upcomi...

The PSP version of Tekken 6 is going to have all the bells and whistles of its PS3 and Xbox 360 counterpart. At least, that's what Namco Bandai's public relations manager wants you to believe. Arne Cual-Pedroso told Siliconera that "pretty much everything in the console version will be in the PSP....

While we were already aware of some Penny Arcade / Tekken 6 cross-pollination, we didn't realize how far it went. In addition to Penny Arcade's fabled Cardboard Tube Samurai appearing in Namco's upcoming fighter, it looks like Gabe and Tycho have created a comic for the game as well. The first page ...

Tekken 6 continues to expand its repertoire of manga-inspired special costumes. Masashi Kishimoto, creator of Naruto, is collaborating with Namco Bandai by creating an alternate outfit for Lars (seen above). This is the second costume from a famous mangaka for Tekken 6, the first being CLAMP's des...

That is to say: All forty characters in the game will be available from the first moment Tekken 6 graces your disc drive. Speaking to VideoGamer, Tekken series director Katsuhiro Harada stated -- through a translator -- that unlockables in games are "outdated." Harada says that unlockables were or...

Picked up by way of the Gamertag Radio forums from the alleged Twitter account of Tekken 6 -- we know, we know -- it was confirmed this afternoon that the image you see above of Penny Arcade's Cardboard Tube Samurai is, in fact, the real deal. Where, you ask? Well, of course, Mike "Gabe" Krahulik'...

Tekken 6 continues to get more bizarre. Famed all-female mangaka group CLAMP (known for Cardcaptor Sakura, X/1999, xxxHolic, Code Geass) is designing new costume designs for Namco Bandai's upcoming fighter. Here, we see Jin wearing a wardrobe that would fit perfectly in CLAMP's Tsubasa Chronicle. ...

E3 was brütal! If you blinked, for a split/second, you missed something. Even if you were trine to keep up, it was a blur -- staying a.wake like that, you only pushed yourself to the brink of your own dark void. That's where Joystiq comes in; to crackdown on the madness; to reach out ... with ...

When we arrived at the Bandai Namco booth for our appointment today, we were immediately thrust into a back room and shown Tekken 6. We took it through the new Scenario mode, the series' evolution of Tekken Force Mode, and tried our hand at some of the classic brawling. Basically, it's still Tekke...

The company will host...
